Getting paid with Selz Pay

If you are using Selz Pay as your payment gateway and have payments enabled on your Selz account, you'll get paid daily, weekly, or monthly for your credit card sales into your chosen bank account. All Selz Pay transfers will display as 'Selz' on your bank descriptor.

Please here to learn more about your transfer schedule, so you know when to expect payment for your orders.

Your first Selz Pay transfer

Our payment processor for Selz Pay needs to treat every seller's first transfer differently from subsequent transfers. 

They wait seven days after your first successful charge before sending the first electronic transfer to your bank account. 

Delaying your first transfer for a few extra days allows them to address some of the risks that are inherent in providing credit services to our sellers.
